election day. the focus is still on critical swing states. polling from cbs news, "the new york times" and quinnipiac shows the president up by five points in ohio. that is unchanged from two weeks ago. in florida, just a single point separates the two candidates. the president had a nine-point lead in september. it's a similar story in virginia where mitt romney has closed the president's lead to within two points. are you really going to slurp your coffee? yes, you are. okay. when it comes to -- >> brutal. >> john heilemann. >> he isn't slurping his coffee. >> i just wondered. you're like my dad. he does that. >> when it comes to early voting, the president's ahead in both ohio and virginia. i tell you what, the economic outlook's a big reason why barack obama's maintaining this five-point lead. look at the same quinnipiac poll, these internals are brutal for mitt romney. any way you slice it. unless you believe that quinnipiac, one of the most accurate polling that's out there is cooking the books. and if you do, change channels because you're listening to the wrong channel. >> yes
three states. if they do it's a landslide. you talk about the gallup number, today the cbs/"new york times" numbers came out. three swing states, obama leads by one. in ohio, he leads by five. in virginia, he leads by two. this momentum by romney is all concocted and the press fell for it. dais i didn't call on you but you -- >> dana: i didn't call on you but you went anyway so i'll take the last word. one poll that came out yesterday that was interest, the national public radio teamed up resurgent republic to talk about the independent voters. if we go back eight months ago on the program to say what will matter in the election, independent voters. democrats vote for democrats. republicans vote for republicans. we have a group. gallop said 40% of the people identify independents now. there is an 8-point swing for independents in favor of romney. it happened right after the first debate if denver. 51-39%. they will have more detail out of the npr public tomorrow. it can tell you this. guess what? tomorrow in his column, karl rove in the "wall street journal" column, he will make pred

, it went up for a day, and ap did not pick up on it, and it popped, i went on charlie rose, cbs in morning and drudge report put it on the top it took off for a half day, then i don't know if it hurt or helped. neil: they didn't read it. 9 times out of 10, you come on the show, we make a point, you have a book out real read your book. by the way you write a lot of thick books, but they are great. we feel we owe you, that in this case, a lot of people -- rolling stone, and blah, blah, they head it and said oh, my gosh, that has become a big issue. or has the storm made it dissipate? >> it probably dissipated. but it may be on history records. the harvest word -- harshest word that president used by mitt romney, but, you know it is a nutshell reflects i think the president's view of his opponent. neil: open license in your next obama book for that. i look forward to that, it will douglas. >> take care. neil: douglas brinkley, a world-class historian. so world class that presidents feel comfortable just cursing around him 92 cell phone services disrupted, former verizon wireless ceo danny wit
states, the latest cbs/"new york times"/quinnipiac poll has the president with a five-point lead in ohio, with virginia and florida much higher but also ever so slightly in the president's favor. a new cnn poll of polls shows mitt romney holding a one-point advantage over the president nationally. >>> the romney campaign hits the reset button today after being idled by superstorm sandy briefly. the republican challenger makes three campaign stops, all in florida, attending rallies at tampa, coral gables and jacksonville. his campaign was buoyed by an endorsement from the telegraph in nashua, new hampshire. the editorial board writes we are confident romney is the candidate who would tackle 9 serious issues facing this nation starting with jobs, the economy and the debt. in the end we couldn't say the same about the president. that paper endorse ed barack oba in 2008. and we're getting late word that mitt romney and paul ryan will kick off a four-day tour starting on friday. they'll be joined by their wimps and some 100 other surrogates will be standing out around the country, condoleezza
and has the momentum. today new quinnipiac/"new york times"/cbs polls has the president up five points in ohio and then they have florida and virginia in a dead heat with the president up by one point in florida and two points in virginia. then you look at the romney mini surge in the nonbattleground states, maybe romney does have some momentum. think minnesota, michigan and pennsylvania. but then you have to look at the campaign body language and it's hard not to con chewed that r romney's campaign is acting as if they believe they are behind at least when it comes to the state of ohio. for starters, the romney campaign likely would not be airing this controversial jeep ad if they believe they were winning. both chrysler and gm are firing back at romney. chrysler ceo said in a statement jeep assembly lines will remain in operation in the united states and will con sstitute th backbone of the grand. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. a gm spokesman told the detroit news, quote, we've clearly enter ed some parallel universe during the last few days, no amount of campaign po
are not falling for it in the state of ohio. >> as we look at the latest polling from cbs, the new york times and quinnipiac, find the majority of people in ohio, over 50%, is saying that the economy is getting better. obviously the governor's message is one that relies on economic frustration and the president is holding a firewall in ohio currently. we've talked before and you said that ohio is going to be delivered for the president. do you still feel confident about that? >> i do, thomas. even though we're feeling some of the residual effects of sandy and my heart and soul and prayers go out to our brothers and sisters on the east coast, we are holding for the president. the latest polls show 50 to 45% for early voters, 60 to 34% and among women, thank god almighty 55 to 40% because women in ohio understand it and they don't want to elect leaders that will treat them like second-class citizens, leaders that have a campaign that would say that rape is a form of conception. it makes absolutely no sense. ohio understands who's been standing by their side for the last four years. and just as
to parse all the categories. i think it is interesting that romney in the last cbs/times poll, polled better in terms of people who were more confident about handling the economy and the deficit which are the one and two areas of concern among likely voters. now, that's pretty interesting that the person who has the lead in those things is behind in the polls. and it shows i think the big problem for romney now is where will a new gust of momentum come from. he needs one. there's a jobs report on friday. that could conceivably be it. what if it's not. and now you have a kind of desperate lob grenade, try to find something that connects because the president -- >> peanut butter give. >> the president gets to engage on the campaign. he gets to be doing his job, to be a very serious person, going to see the damage in new jersey, seeing what he can do. it really is a big problem for romney right now. >> initially nothing for romney to do himself. i mean nobody cares what mitt romney thinks about the storm recovery in new jersey. it's very challenging position for him. >> what do we think
leap. i want to run a number that jumped out at me from the cbs/"the new york times" poll. in this poll, they asked ohio, florida and virginia voters do you think things in your state, the economic conditions in your state are getting better, worse or staying the same? you look at florida, 37-25 better. virginia 39-19 better. ohio, you have the unemployment rate lower than the national average. 52% better, 17% worse. pretty big difference there. is this just a case where the economic conditions in a particular state are kind of overriding national factors? >> i think that's possible. certainly the case of the state economy stronger than elsewhere and the auto bailout is a tangible example to look at the president saying that's something that made the economic conditions where i live better and not true elsewhere in the country but i will note that broadly speaking romney's performing worse in states where the economy is doing well and like in iowa and the unemployment rate is lower than it is in ohio so i think it's not just as simple of whether the economy is doing well and other facto
